20130302 - Gunpowder Falls, Sweet Air, Shakedown #


For a Philmont shake down trip we did a day hike at the Sweet Air area of Gunpowder Falls State Park.  We planned to do 9.1 miles.  Actual mileage was 8.0.  We did make readying skills as we made several loops back and forth across the park (and tried not to overlap the trails).  This turned out to be a great place with a good mix of trail quality and topography.  We only saw a few others on the trails so it was relatively quiet as well.
